Avocado oil......wonderful for aromatherapy massage because it is so beautifully rich and nourishing and penetrates well into the skin. It can be used on its own, but I never do......I find the texture a bit heavy, so I like to blend it with other carrier oils such as grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil when I am doing a massage.
Avocado oil is often referred to as a vegetable oil.....but it is actually a fruit!
This oil is quite expensive, but it is worth making sure that you find a good quality, organic, cold-pressed unrefined oil. Refined avocado oil is pale yellow so it is easy to tell it apart from the dark, olive green unrefined oil.
A dark green colour with a thick feeling texture. It has quite a strong fresh, sweet and nutty aroma - not everyone likes it!
Quite expensive with a shelf-life of about 12 months.
Do not keep this oil in the fridge as it may become cloudy and form deposits when chilled
